As Palo Alto High School’s winter sports teams build chemistry and prepare for league play with vigor, the new captains of the soccer, wrestling and basketball teams enter the scene ready to take on the field, the floor and the court. Let’s meet the captains.
The girl’s varsity soccer team once again shown its excellence on the field with a stunning 11-0 victory over El Camino High School (0-6, 0-0) on Thursday, and is currently on a five-game undefeated streak in its preseason matches.
Meet Natalie Maloney. Senior Maloney has been playing for varsity since her freshman year.
NM: “I started playing soccer when I was 6 years old because my brother started playing and I wanted in on the action. Right before pre-season games started, my coach called me and told me that I was going to be captain for the 2016-17 season. It’s such a huge honor because the Paly program has seen some amazing players pass through and this current team is incredible, so it’s crazy to be a leader of such an insanely talented group of girls.”
PV: What are you looking forward to most this season?
NM: “I’m definitely looking forward to playing our rivals, Mountian View. That’s a game that everyone should come see. It’s going to be a tough match.”
